Polaroid 37mm Neutral Density Fader Filter

You Pay: $36.99
Product Highlights
  • 3x to 400x Variable ND Filter
  • Decrease Exposure by 1.3 to 8.6 Stops
  • Multicoated Glass Construction

The Polaroid 37mm Neutral Density Fader Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing a reduction of about 1.3 to 8.6 stops. The ND 3x to ND 400x density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, allowing you to previsualize the additional exposure length required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

Variable neutral density filter allows you to dial in differing amounts of density scene to scene.
3x to 400x neutral density filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a reduction of 1.3 to 8.6 stops, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

    Comments about Polaroid 37mm Neutral Density Fader Filter:

    Opinions will difer but I think anyone serious about shooting photos or videos will have neutral density filters in mind during any project. If you didn't already know, ND filters allow you to reduce the amount of light entering the lens and consequently begin using depth of field as a tool in production. To use a blurred out background or not to use a blurred out background should be a creative choice and ND filters give you the option to do so in bright/direct sunlight. This one is great because of it's wide range, and immediate adjustability. Perfect for on the go/run and gun. Solid quality. I wish it had some kind of hard stops to denote the range. Doesn't work with lens hoods...that i've had.

    Comments about Polaroid 37mm Neutral Density Fader Filter:

    I purchased these variable ND filters for shooting video with my Lumix GH3 mirrorless camera. I am a longtime video shooter and appreciate having the ability to manipulate the lighting conditions, aperture and depth of field with the use of ND filters. These work well, but I sometimes have to check to make sure that it does not improperly adjusted where there is too much density.

      Comments about Polaroid 37mm Neutral Density Fader Filter:

      I bought this filter to use with my iPhone 4S and the iSteady rig. Fits perfectly. I have purchased from B&H online, as with this order, and I have purchased from them at their NYC store on a recent visit.

      If you haven't been to B&H in person and you find yourself in NYC go! The personnel there are extremely knoweldgeabe and helpful. They have their system down to a science... it's a trip.

      This filter is well made, good price and fast shipping. Makes a big difference when you're shooting with bright sunlight. If you're an iPhone photographer or filmmaker, grab the iSteady rig and this filter.
